27 billion. this bill was nor $60 billion. that's the number that governor cuomo, governor christie and player bloomberg need. just having a vote doesn't mean much unless it's for the full $60 million. i don't know how the speakler do that if he follows his policy saying you have to have a majority of the majority. it's very difficult to get anything out of that conference, especially when you're dealing with the northeast. if the speaker can do it, fine. we've been down this path now for the last month where i've been assured time and again everything was fine. i was in with the speak with her governor cuomo, governor christie was with the speaker, i met with eric cantor a number of times and as far as i can tell he's been entire live straight with us. as late as last night he was trying to get the bill on the calendar. if this is not delivered and very quickly, republicans have no trouble finding new york when this comes to raising money and i would just say anyone from new york or new jersey who contributes one penny to congressional republicans after this should have their head
for less drama than speaker boehner managed to anger chris christie, andrew cuomo, the entire northeast constituency and then some. now i guess he's had a change of heart. is that right? >> he drew a lot of bipartisan fire. and peter king after firing some broad sides at speaker boehner and who on the floor suggest that republicans stop donating money to the republican party until this thing gets straightened out as a means of retribution, peter king emerged from that meeting with other tri-state area lawmakers and says what's done a done. my anger this morning was a lifetime ago. apparently the speaker patched things up to a sufficient agree with peter king. i don't know about the democrats from that area. with his offer now to put a bill on the floor for $9 billion. a down payment sof $9 billion, the most urgent need is flood insurance for those folks on the coast of new jersey, new york, and connecticut. put that on the floor on friday. just a day after the new congress begins. and pledges to do the $51 billion on january 15th. here's the problem all along. the speaker did not want t
, including governor christie a governor and governor cuomo, a democrat should be deeply disappointed. >> bill: yeah i can't wait to hear what chris christie has to say about that today. >> i'm sure christie will let us know how he feels. >> bill: no doubt about that. 866-55-press. we're here on the "full court press" with arthur delaney. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv this is the "bill press show." thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week.

cuomo and governor bloomberg give a breakdown of the republican leadership, we were told it was satisfactory. there was no pork. i wish they would tell the truth. connell: no vote you know of on the schedule today? >> no. 100 people are missing today. the house is not in session today. connell: congressman king from capitol hill, talk to you again soon. back to the markets, big rally today with a deal on the fiscal cliff. stuart hoffman from pnc financial services out of pittsburgh, peter barnes at the top of the hour on what this deal means to you individually but what does it mean to the economy as a whole? stuart: i think it is a good thing. we avoided the huge tax hikes that would have thrown the economy into recession. the disappointment is we kicked the can down the road on the spending side. the two month we gotta deal with the debt ceiling, we had assumed there would be $150 billion of tax hikes if you want to call it that and another $50 billion of spending cuts. that hasn't been determined. the unemployment would be extended. it really doesn't cause us to go bac
of the two states, governor cuomo of new york and chris christi of new jersey. >> dan, thanks very much. >>> while republicans have been fighting among themselves over the fiscal cliff deal and the disaster relief, we're learning of an angry and foul-mouthed exchange between the house speaker john boehner and harry reid days before the deal. it was touched off by this comment from harry reid. >> the american people i don't think understand the house of representatives is operating without the house of representatives. it's being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker, not allowing the vast majority of the house of representatives to get what they want. john boehner seems to care more about keeping his speakership than keeping the nation on firm financial footing. >> our senior congressional correspondent, dana bash, is joining us with more on this story. pick it up for our viewers, because some ugly words were exchanged. >> reporter: that's right. this incident happened last friday in the lobby of the white house when they were waiting to go into meet with the president on the fisc
to use the path to allow making a three-point. one is in accordance with the approach that governor cuomo in new york and governor christie have taken, we at the port authority believe in accountability. we understand there will be accountable to the federal government and for federal funds and notably to the taxpayers for every dollar we receive. second point i'd note is the port authority has already spent out of pocket about $200 million since superstorm sandy occurred on october 29. those dollars are real, we're prepared to demonstrate every dollar. third, i would note that we're not talking, none of our agencies are talking about a bridge to nowhere. we are talking about restoring tunnels and bridges and train stations, whether it's new jersey transit, nda, which exists, which serves millions and tens of men's of passengers a year. and the damage in the case of cat are to equipment that was installed 50, 60, 70 years ago which is frankly only available and can be viewed at the smithsonian. and we're prepared, mr. chairman, to demonstrate every come and be accountable for every dollar
